Guitars

Bostyx, a guitar-rock band that combines the music of ‘70s and ‘80s hitmakers Boston and Styx, turned up the heat Saturday night at Lake Clementia Amphitheater, opening with Boston’s electric version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a crowd of 650. Entertainment, Theatre & Culture, which staged the event, awarded its annual scholarship before the show.

The musicians, who include former Boston vocalist and guitarist David Victor,  came on strong with Styx’s “Fooling Yourself,” but it was the group’s rendition of Boston's biggest hit, “More Than a Feeling,” that started the race to the dance floor. The floor stayed packed for the rest of the show, through “Too Much Time On My Hands,” “Amanda,” “Peace of Mind,” “Lady” and other hits. Arm-waving and sing-alongs became as much a part of the show as dancing as the band interacted with the audience.

This year’s ETC scholarship winner is Kiley Callahan, whose winning essay identified politics as an important influence on the arts today. Kiley will be a student at Chapman University, where she plans to study film production. Her essay appeared in the show program.

ETC also recognized the achievement of some other Murietans with a shout-out to members of the Cosumnes River Little League's 8-10-year-old girls, who won the Section 4 title and finished third in the state last weekend.
